Wow! Firefox 3D!

Anyone seen that?

Open a page in FF.

CTRL+SHIFT+I

Click the cube icon in the bottom right (e.g. the top right of the inspection window)

Pan/rotate/zoom-in/out with the mouse buttons and scroll weel.

Click the cube again to restore 2D.

I never cease to be amazed :slight_smile:

Nice playing. But does it have any use? Or is it just to use up the capacity of computer resources?

It is not 3D. It is a method for web devs to easily see the components
of a page.

No, absolutely not. Why do you say that? :-?

Did you try it? For instance in wikipedia. It is visually ugly, but
useful for inspecting a page. Unless you see it different than what I
see here… I can post a photo.

Why is the button in Developer Tools named 3D View if it isn’t 3D?

This is General Chit-chat. Do not take me serious by any means.

Ask those people that gave it that name. Do not believe everytthing people say, in a button name or elsewhere.

Ah, ok. I misread your smiley. :open_mouth: means surprise.

Because it is similar to a 3D view. What they do is somehow emphasize
the different components of the page, so that they appear to be at a
different “height” for the page devs and hackers to see clearly where
they are.

Have a look at any complex page with it. Even this forum.

I can see the similarity to a 3D view…

Looks like a nice exploded view for seeing how elements are nested - I
could see a lot of value for trying to figure out a page hierarchy,
especially for finding an element to block with adblock (for example).

That describes it much better IMHO then 3D.

I assumed you are aware by now that your NNTP smileys are nothing but keyboard scribleys on the HTTP interface. And most probably our smileys are not rendered properly in the NNTP interface. So do not rely on your interpretation of them. rotfl!

… but …

We always take you serious, Henk! :open_mouth:

In some complex page-building on websites, it is a priceless feature.

In that case, I better avoid Chit-chat (and Soapbox) even more then I do now. I would spoil the fun of those who like these sections.

Yes, LOL. :slight_smile:

The smiley you two used, which here (nntp) is seen as


:O

and which I looked up on the web side, to verify the graphic, can be
interpreted as shouting or surprise (it depends on which listing of
smileys you read). As I have some difficulties myself with interpreting
these things, I used Thunderbird to send myself an email in html, taking
what appears the most similar smiley from the drop-down list. Visually
it is quite similar to what you are using, but it is labeled as “yell”.
In plain text, it is rendered by thunderbird as:


>:o

which is an open mouth, eyes, and a… in Spanish it is “entrecejo
fruncido”, which google translates as “frown”. Those hair things above
the eyes pointing down at the center of the face.

This one you two used:


:O

I understand as surprise, but I could be mistaken. As I said, the smiley
lists I have consulted do not agree on it.

So you see, I hope you understand my confusion in reading that statement
not as a kind of joke but as something serious.

And I’m kind of… seeing the humour of things that I’m not the only one
failing to express sentiments here such that other people understand the
same as me :wink:

Indeed, it does.

I’ll try to remember to try that view when wanting to block a nosy advert.

Sounds better than exploded view.

I like that you can turn the view to the sides, top, bottom and reverse sides.

When you click on the 3D view button, the page goes into 3D view mode; in this mode, you can see your page presented in a 3D view in which nested blocks of HTML are increasingly “tall,” projecting outward from the bottom of the page. This view makes it easy to visualize the nesting of your content.

Yes, I saw that, I am not that dumb. But IMHO that can at most be called 2½D. It is (a sort of) 3D emulation on a 2D screen. The result of which is never 3D.
